I'll Fight For You

By Hazelmist/Summerskies


It's over.

I fought until there was nothing left in me, but he won in the end. Tears blind my vision, and I crumple to the floor before him not by choice, but by the workings of his curse. I'm begging him not to touch him. Take me. I don't care. Just don't take my son. He throws back his head and laughs, amused, and perplexed by me. He's not human. He has no heart. He doesn't understand love. The laugh chills my bones, and makes my blood run cold. And I know right then and there that it's over.

I'm sorry. I love you both, but it seems that I've failed.

I don't hear anything. My world has suddenly gone silent. The devil's lips are moving. I can see them mouthing those fatal words that I know will end my life. But I don't hear them.

Suddenly, I'm hearing voices coming from all directions. They're echoes of my past life, flashes of my childhood, glimpses of familiar faces, and scenes of happier days.

They say that just before you die your whole life flashes before your eyes.

They're right... But they're wrong...

Only the parts that matter are seen in those brief moments before life leaves the body. Time seems to come to a standstill, and suddenly, I'm seeing it all over again. The moments of my past are relived, and I remember.

The Happines.

And The Sadness.

The Friendships.

And The Love.

The Deaths.

And Life...

It's all coming back to me...

A/N: Here it is, my new story, my pet project since November 2004. It's much different from Cursed, or at least I think so. I had to put the Prologue by itself. You have to read the first chapter obviously before you get the idea of the story. Okay, so enjoy…
